Do You Need An Extension To File Your Tax Return?

Need more time to prepare your federal tax return? This page provides information on how to apply for an extension of time to file. Please be aware that an extension of time to file your return does not grant you any extension of time to pay your taxes. Today April 15 is the deadline for most to pay taxes owed and avoid penalty and interest charges.

Form 4868,Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return

Special rules may apply if you are:

  • Serving in a combat zone or a qualified hazardous duty area
  • Living outside the United States

You can also get an extension by paying all or part of your estimated income tax due and indicate that the payment is for an extension using Direct Pay, the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS), or a credit or debit card. This way you won’t have to file a separate extension form and you will receive a confirmation number for your records.
